Decrease Your Child’s Fear From The Doctor

Learn the necessary tools to help prepare and support kids in a medical setting, from a checkup to a hospitalization. Have your child bring their favorite doll or stuffed animal to explore with medical play.

Children at all ages can develop fear and anxiety over a medical experience. Parents can often times feel overwhelmed and intimidated, which can then make the experience that much more difficult. As a Certified Child Life Specialist, my role is to help bridge that gap, providing services to support children’s emotional, psychosocial and developmental needs by working with the whole family.

In this workshop we will cover these key components:
How to incorporate play to help kids prepare and process a new experience
Learn distraction and coping techniques
How to prepare kids for a medical experience
Learn how to advocate to the medical team
Learn how to hold your child in a comfort position for a medical procedure
How to use empathic language to support your child’s emotions
Learn how to pack a go bag for urgent care and emergency department visits
